Carpet Tile Benefits

For the majority of projects, carpet tiles are a superior choice both practically and in terms of design.

One of the main reasons architects and designers, not to mention floor fitters , choose to work with carpet tiles is the ease with which they can be installed.

  • Carpet tiles are easy to lift and transport, making it easier to get them on the job site undamaged, in the first place.
  • Because they’re pre-backed, carpet tiles  can be installed directly onto the subfloor, eliminating the need for underlays. This saves a lot of time and effort, not to mention money.
  • Carpet tiles don’t always need to acclimatise or settle in place for 24 hours before they are laid.
  • Less waste; carpet tiles generate minimal waste in the fitting stage. This is because very little cutting, or adjustment, is needed for tiles to fit a given space. This is particularly true of rooms with many nooks and odd angles.
  • You can expect a waste of around 1-3 %. Less waste means less money spent, but is also attractive for clients concerned sustainability.
